CC: Where do you get your ideas?
CC: I get my ideas everywhere; my most recent WIP was from a Roseanne episode when one of the characters asked if they’d ever heard of a doctor marrying a mechanic. Boom… I’ve got a WIP called The Doctor & The Mechanic.
CC: Have you written characters that are someone you know?
CC: I’d say 75% of the characters contain parts of me. However, I love including the names of people I know. I’m working on something for DSP’s World of Love, and there is a couple in my story that have are loosely based on a good friend who loves hiking the Appalachian Trail, so I’ve had that couple go on the foodie tour at the beginning.
CC: What did you like about being a supporting author at GRL?
CC: OMG! It was the most amazing experience. Talking about my books, talking to readers and finding out how much we have in common. Running into old friends, I’ve known on Facebook forever and meeting new people I hope become life-long friends.
CC: Do you like to research?
CC: I love to research. I go everywhere, Google maps, home rental sites, Wikipedia, the library for more specific books. I haven’t had much luck contacting professionals with the same job, or businesses in the location where I’m writing, but for the most part… If I need to know something, I ask around. Lucky for me, I know two Peruvian women, who are helping me with specifics about Peru, for my Nanowrimo WIP.
CC: Have you written something out of the m/m realm?
CC: 7 With 1 Blow is not a m/m romance book. There are gay characters, but it’s not a romance. It is a book about BDSM, the proper way to do it. As, my good friend Hans Hirschi said, it reads like an introduction to BDSM.
